Even in the face of escalating violence, UNICEF's work for children and families continues. UNICEF is scaling up its humanitarian response in Afghanistan and will continue to deliver much-needed support.

"No matter how difficult life is, always feed the little ones," Gloria, a grandmother in the Philippines, tells @NPRGoatsandSoda. With food insecurity growing, families like hers are making tough choices in order to keep their children fed.

The war in #Yemen has created the largest humanitarian crisis in the world. Conflict, economic decline and COVID-19 have pushed food prices out of reach for many. UNICEF is working to provide families with support. But above all else, children need peace.

Alarming @uscensusbureau data says children under 5 have the highest rate of poverty. About half of these young children were living in deep poverty in 2020 — experiencing significant hardship during critical stages of brain development. #EndChildPoverty

Despite being in the midst of a pandemic, new data from @uscensusbureau shows us that child poverty actually decreased in the United States in 2020 when taking into account the impact of cash transfers, income supports, nutrition assistance and more. #EndChildPoverty

The scenes from the border are deeply concerning. According to initial estimates, over 2 in 3 Haitian migrants returned to Port-au-Prince are women and children. I'm thankful @UNICEFMexico and @UNICEFHaiti are responding with supplies and support.

When children and families are sent back without adequate protection, they are even more vulnerable to the factors that drove them to migrate in the first place. Their safety and well-being must be priorities. #AChildIsAChild

Ababa gave birth to Wegahta at home with only her mother's help, because their health center was no longer functioning. Shortly after, the family had to flee home because of nearby fighting. "I was constantly afraid, worried that we would be attacked," says Ababa.

In Ethiopia's #Tigray region, UNICEF-supported nutrition screening centers have become a lifeline to many, including both Ababa and her 6-month-old daughter, Wegahta. Both of them were identified as acutely malnourished. Their story is sadly familiar:

A new @UNICEF report shows that the pandemic, climate change and conflict have seriously heightened the existing global nutrition crisis — and children are paying the highest price. An urgent reminder of why we must invest in nutrition:

Having had COVID, it’s something I would not wish on ANYONE. The need for vaccine equity is greater than ever to protect more people around the world. Hoping to see more countries with available vaccines #DonateDosesNow! #COVIDSummit #UNGA

"The path out of this pandemic is clear, but we can only get out together," says @UNICEFChief. UNICEF, through COVAX, has helped deliver over 280M doses to 141 countries. As the lead delivery partner, we are ready to deliver billions more to those in need. #UNGA #COVIDSummit

Excited to see the commitments made at the Global Vaccine Summit today. As a @UNICEFUSA Ambassador, I know wider vaccine coverage is key to ending the pandemic. I hope this moment encourages more world leaders to #DonateDosesNow.

We hope this moment inspires more countries with the resources to #DonateDosesNow, so that millions of frontline health care workers in low–income and middle-income countries can get vaccinated against COVID-19. #UNGA
